CHOOSING THE RIGHT (^ofcigWii PRODUCT 
FOR YOUR FLOORS 



IT'S A QUESTION OF ''GRADE" 

When selecting your Gold Seal floor covering you to the ground level. Moisture content differs at 

should consider the height of the floor in relation various levels— anrf this is the important factor. 




] 



BELOW-GRADE FLOOR— Basements are considered 
below-grade. The floor is usually concrete, and in 
contact with the ground. Choose: Gold Seal Asphalt 
Tile, or Gold Seal "Vinylbest" Tile. 

ON-GRADE FLOOR— This is a Concrete slab at ground 
level over a drainage pad of cinders, gravel or 
crushed stone. Choose among these Gold Seal products: 
Rubber Tile, Nairon® Tile products, '^Vinylbest" 
Tile, Cork Tile, and Asphalt Tile. 

ABOVE-GRADE FLOOR— Typically a wood or concrete 
floor suspended above a full or partial basement. 
Here there should be no moisture problem. Choose 
from the full line of Gold Seal floors: This includes 
all the products mentioned, and in addition, Gold 
Seal ''Congoleum" and Gold Seal Linoleum yard 
goods and tile. 

NOW PICK YOUR GOLD SEAL FLOOR— After Considering 
your floor in terms of grade, let the type of room 
and decor guide you in your final selection among 
Gold Seal products. 

You will find the specific advantages of each floor 
and wall covering in the individual product sections 
of this catalog. All patterns in each product category 
are reproduced as faithfully as fine color engraving 
and printing will permit. Look through this book— 
you'll find a Gold Seal product that's right for any 
purse, purpose or taste! 



MAKING THE INSTALLATION —The best installations 
are made by professionals— so if you want the 
assurance that comes with a job expertly done, let 
your dealer's factory-trained mechanic do the work. 
// you prefer to do it, then choose from the many 
Gold Seal products recommended for simple, do-it- 
yourself installation. 

WOOD FLOORS 

SINGLE WOOD FLOORS, found in attics or old houses, 
have only one thickness of boards. Such floors 
require a top layer of plywood before instaUing 
resilient floor coverings. However, if the floor is 
^4' plywood, no top layer is needed. 




DOUBLE WOOD FLOORS are most commonly found in 
the form of a surface floor of narrow tongue-and- 
groove boards set over the under-floor. If the surface 
floor is flat and in good condition, and board joints 
are tight, resilient floor coverings may be installed 
directly over it. * 





This side of the room is floored with Gold Seal Fashion Floor 
Linoleum Tile in Shell Beige accented with Harvest Beige. 



Over here the same room has Gold Seal "Starway' 
Inlaid Linoleum in Tan on the floor. 



what to choose for floors . . . 

TILES OR BY-THE-YARD? 



It's a matter of taste! Both meet the basic require- 
ments of fine quality floor covering— yet each has 
special features to recommend it. 

TILES— In Gold Seal Tile you have a wide, wide range 
of color and design. A custom floor design can be 
achieved by simply combining two or more colors in 
various ways! And you can install tile yourself— 
saving up to j^ the cost! 



BY-THE-YARD— With virtually no seams to collect dust 
and dirt, Gold Seal floors by-the-yard are highly sani- 
tary and easy to care for. Selection in colors and de- 
signs is wide enough for every taste . . . every decorative 
plan. Borders, feature strips and insets give added 
scope for personalized design. 

And— as this flooring is professionally installed— you 
have extra assurance of an expert job. 



and how about WALLS? 



You can choose among these three fine quality Gold Seal 
wall coverings for home and business: 

GOLD SEAL CONGO WALL Contains exclusive G-10 Plastic— 
for a brighter, smoother finish. A damp cloth cleans it! 
Patented felt backing assures trouble-free installation.

looking "tile" and "brick" effects. 



GOLD SEAL NAIRON STANDARD TILE— For walls as well as 
floors ! Satin-smooth, long wearing. Wipes clean in a jiffy !

designs. See Tile Section for complete selection.

• . . new^ modern 
exclusive flooring 




With sparkling new "Sequin," Gold Seal brings dec- 
orator styling to heavy-duty flooring. The pattern 
has the authentic ''terrazzo look"— rich, vibrant, 
colorful. But Gold Seal ''Sequin" inlaid hnoleum 
costs far less to install than terrazzo . . . offers more 
depth and variety of coloring . . . provides far greater 
comfort and quiet underfoot! 

The all-over design hides scuffs— requires less buff- 
ing. Cleaning is easy, for the surface is dense, smooth 
and glossy . . . offers excellent resistance to dirt. 




grease and common spills. Practical 6-ft. widths 
provide a virtually seamless wall-to-wall expanse 
of floor that is highly sanitary. 

Gold Seal ''Sequin" inlaid hnoleum provides truly 
outstanding wear. The conclusive wear layer abra- 
sion test described below shows why! 

RECOMMENDED USES: 

Gold Seal ''Sequin'' inlaid linoleum may be installed 
over any above-grade floor of wood, concrete or ceramic 
tile— including those with radiant heating. 



"Abrasive Wheel" Test proves 
"Sequin" keeps its pattern 
as no other Vb" linoleum can! 

The circular "After Test" area is the 
result of applying the abrasive wheel 
to the "Sequin" sample. See how 
it has worn well through the linoleum — 
and yet the pattern is still there, as 
clear and sharp as ever! Compare 
it with the "Before Test" area. 
You can't tell the difference!

LINOLEUM 



This is a special type of linoleum that contains 
electrically conductive ingredients. It is designed to 
dissipate static electricity— a dangerous explosive 
hazard in surgical wards, arsenals, powder plants 
and other commercial areas. 

AN EXCLUSIVE PRODUCT— This Special flooring is the 
only linolexmi material of its type sold. It has been 
installed in such nationally famous hospitals as the 
Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital and 
Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York; 
Passavant General Hospital, Cleveland; and the 
Oak Ridge Hospital in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. 

LONG WEAR, EASY CARE— This floor is tough and 
flexible. The surface is highly sanitary . . . resists 
dirt and stains ... cleans quickly. 

MADE TO RIGID STANDARDS— Every step of manu- 
facture is under strict laboratory control. The 
finished product is carefully tested before shipment. 
Because this conductive floor is factory-manufac- 
tured, there is no guess work of ''on the job mixing" 
to get proper electrical resistance. 




FULLY APPROVED— Gold Seal Static-Conductive Lino- 
leum is made in two types: 

CL5U— For hospital use. Approved by the Under- 
writer's Laboratories, Inc. It meets all the require- 
ments of the National Fire Protection Association 
which estabUshes recommended practices for operat- 
ing rooms. It is important to note that Type CL5U, 
in addition to meeting the requirement for maxi- 
mum resistance, also has a specified minimum 
resistance. This latter requirement is essential to 
protect personnel against possible shock from 
accidental grounding. 

CL5G— For arsenals, powder plants and other com- 
mercial areas. FiUs the specifications of the U. S. 
Ordnance Department Safety Bulletin for electrical 
conductivity.

DESIGN X"^ INLAID LINOLEUM 

• • . rich coloring with the casual touch 



Gold Seal "Design X" is a triumph in all-over 
design! Colors are true and clear— without the 
cloudiness generally found in this type of decora- 
tion. The pattern, though non-directional, is sharp 
and definite , . . with life and snap ! 

FOR ANY DECOR— The quiet beauty of this flooring 
goes well with all interiors— of whatever style or 
period. Random blending of basic colors, and ap- 
propriate multi-color accents provide the home- 
maker with virtually unlimited color themes for 
room decorating. 

EASY TO CARE FOR— The dense, satin-smooth surface 
of "Design X" resists dirt, grease and common 
spills . . . makes cleaning faster, easier. The over- 



all design hides scuff marks remarkably well. 

OUTSTANDING VALUE — ^^Design X" will last and 
last! Colors are "locked in"— will not fade. Prac- 
tical 6-ft. widths, sold by the yard, save on installa- 
tion time and cost. "Design X" is also available

gives extra flexibility and strength. No other lining 
felt is needed— cutting installation time and cost. 

RECOMMENDED USES: Gold Seal ''Design X" Inlaid 
Linoleum may be installed over any above-grade floor 
of wood, concrete or ceramic tile—including those with 
radiant heating.

How to create your own designs 



What you will want to know about tile floors before you start: 



You must first consider the question of the location of 
the room in relation to the ground. Be sure to see the 
explanatory diagram on Page 4. 



To help you decide what type of tile to use in various 
rooms you will find helpful descriptions of each type of 
Gold Seal Tile starting on page 63. 



HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR COLOR SCHEMES 



Your Home Reflects You — your personality and way of 
living. So your preference is most important. Select 
colors you like . . , use them to please yourself. Of 
course there are some colors that are beautifully com- 
patible . . . and others that simply don't go together. 
But don't let color selection frighten you— the following 
pages give you many suggested color schemes that you 
can adapt to make selection easy . . . and lots of fun. 

Doing Only One Room? If you plan to completely re- 
decorate the room, naturally you'll choose flooring, 
paint and furnishings in colors that are compatible. If 
a new floor is all you plan, be sure it's compatible with 



your existing furniture and decor. Chosen carefully, 
your new floor can bring the whole room alive with 
new beauty. 

More Than One Room? Then it's wise to remember that 
each room is part of the whole house and should be 
compatible with its neighboring rooms. If you plan only 
on new floors, again, consider your present furnishings. 
If a complete redecorating plan is in order, try carrying 
one or two basic colors from room to room, combining 
with other colors in each room. These charts show 
how easy it is. 



Main-floor color scheme based on a brown tint. 

{Of course, the brown, which is common to all four rooms, m,ay be used on the 
floor in one room, on furniture in another room, on a wall in another, etc.) 



Upstairs rooms taking a blue tint as their common color.

WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND ABOUT EACH ROOM - 



South and West Rooms are usually sunny most of the 
day and so have a naturally warm feeling about them. 
In these rooms you can afford to use cool blues and greens. 

North and East Rooms get less sun, tend to seem cooler. 
The warmer shades of rose, beige and peach are gen- 



erally recommended for these rooms. 

Darker Rooms, those receiving very little natural light, 
definitely need the brightening effect of whites and light 
tones. Dark walls, furnishings or floors make these 
rooms seem rather gloomy.

by C. Eugene Stephenson, American institute of Decorators 



HOW TO USE DESIGN TO BEST ADVANTAGE 



Remember these simple principles: 



To keep your floor design from becoming cluttered, never use 
more than 3 or 4 colors. 



If a room has many pieces of furniture, a simple design will 
show them off to best advantage. 



Use busy, "loud" designs only in active areas such as game rooms or 
rumpus rooms — living and dining rooms need quiet, subdued designs. 



How to handle special problems 

SMALL ROOMS: NARROW ROOMS: 



mmi^^m^^^^jLX'.j 



These areas usually lend themselves best to small de- 
signs. For example, this ribbon border is used in an 
entrance hall about 6' x 8'. Notice how the design is 
kept as simple as possible, with the border one tile wide, 
and a ''turned" effect at the corners adding just a touch 
of interest. A simple color scheme also goes best in 
small rooms. It makes them appear larger. 

For suggestions, see Designs #4, 5, 7, 8 & 17 on the 
following pages. 




Try to turn the irregu- 
larity of these rooms into 
an advantage by using 
niT IID D/\/\AAC an irregular design. Here, 

WUT-UrROOfVlS: a corner fireplace is play- 

ed up by diagonal '*quilt" 
pattern that directs your 
attention to the fireplace. The pattern also tends to 
play down the awkward diagonal corner by simply 
ignoring it. Another idea is to ''feature'' an irregularity 
by placing a design near it on an otherwise plain floor. 
For example, a diamond design in front of a bay window, 
or a star design in front of a stair landing. 

For suggestions, see Designs #4, 5, 8, 14 & 18 on the 
following pages. 




Rooms of rather * 'tight" dimen- 
sions one way, can be made to 
look wider if you use stripes of 
contrasting colors, either diago 
nally or straight across. Select! 
subtle colors if the room is con 
servatively decorated, or bold 
colors if it's a brighter room. The 
room shown is approximately 8' 
X 16' with stripes 9" and 18" wide 
in three colors. Naturally, the 
smaller the room, the smaller the 
stripes. 

For suggestions, see Designs #1, 
3, 4, 5, 17 & 18 on the following 
pages. 





HALLWAYS: 

In addition to various stripe and overall patterns, con- 
sider the possibilities of special geometric designs like 
the ones shown here. Unless the design is a form of 
stripe, it isn't generally wise to continue it on the stair. 
For very narrow hallways, stripes or polka dot effects 
usually work best. And in very small hallways, designs 
shouldn't contain too many colors. 

For suggestions, see Designs #1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 & 17 on 
the following pages.

DESIGN #2 



For halls; dining room ^ 



This border treatment, featuring broken rectangles, 
is a simple but effective design. A cool color scheme 
goes best with this rather impersonal style. Don't 
use this design in a room that has an abundance of 
furniture, as the design needs to have space to 
"breathe." Shown here: Orchid mist with taffy 
borders. Woodwork in ivory — walls and ceilings, 
lavender. 

Other Color Combinations: White with red, blue or 
green borders. Almost any color can be used as the 
background, with white borders; but tie in the 
wall color with a darker or lighter tint of whatever 
hue you select. Example: dark green with white 
borders — pale green walls.

< DESIGN #1 



For living room; family room 



The "broken" or "staggered" stripe is especially 
pleasing in modern rooms. The "break" in the 
stripe should line up with some architectural or 
structural line such as the edge of a door or window. 
It is better when the stripe breaks in uneven pro- 
portions, such as 34 or 3^ of the width or length 
of the room, not exactly half. The break will be 
subtle or sharp, depending upon the color com- 
bination selected. Shown here: Emerald green 
stripes on tan background. 

Other Color Combinations: Yellow stripes on brown; 
pink on brown; beige on brown; light green on dark 
green; light blue on charcoal; coral on dark grey.

For kitchen; halls; both 



For bright contemporary rooms with lots of white or 
light wood, a charcoal grey floor can lend a quality 
of depth and sophistication. If you have wrought 
iron furniture, paint it white. With this charcoal 
background use a tile inset consisting of pointed 
bands 9" wide of yellow tile. By cutting some of 
the tiles on the diagonal, a diagonal over-stripe 
effect can be achieved. 

Other Color Combinations: Blue background with 
white bands; red with white; brown with beige; 
green with yellow; black with platinum grey; 
beige with tan.

For child's room; family room 



Rooms that *'take a beating" needn't be drab. This 
boy's room, for example, is modern and colorful, 
yet perfectly practical. For a young lady or little 
girl you would use more delicate colors, of course, 
but stick to the same basic design. Be sure all di- 
rectional texture runs the same way in each color 
or both colors. Shown here: Grey and off-white. 

Other Color Combinations: Good "yo^ng" colors 
are pink and white; blue and yellow; blue and 
white. For game rooms try green and tan; beige 
and red; black and white; or red and brown. 



DESIGN #5 



For most any small room ^ 



Space works for you with this design. It extends 
the visual size of the room by the use of diagonal 
lines. Wall color can be any one of a variety of light 
tones. In planning your design, remember that the 
background tile is either the lightest or darkest 
color — the bands are the medium tones. Shown 
here: Two shades of grey, with white. 

Other Color Combinations: Given in order of light- 
ness as shown here — white, light pink and dark 
pink; light green, dark green and dark grey; white, 
beige and brown; yellow, orange and brown.

For any large area, such as a foyer or dining room, 
this pattern of rectangles or squares creates a won- 
derful feeling of simple dignity. The pattern looks 
well in a wide variety of color combinations, pro- 
vided you avoid too-sharp contrasts. Furnishings 
should be used simply and sparingly in keeping with 
the dignity of the floor. Shown here: "Venetian" 
style beige background with ivory rectangles. 

Other Color Combinations: Grey background with 
yellow rectangles; white with light green; black 
with beige; blue with light blue; brown with pink; 
red with beige; orange with brown.

If you have a contemporary home, or even a feeling 
for this popular style of furnishing and architec- 
ture, this design will express your taste in that 
direction. To call attention to a certain part of 
your room or a particular group of furnishings, use 
a plain background with a set-in panel of color that 
is located in the area you wish to feature. Shown 
here: Grey background with yellow panel. 

Other Color Combinations: Black or white back- 
ground with almost any contrasting panel color; 
colored floor with white panel. (Use white walls 
in this case.) 



DESIGN #8 



For kitchen; family room 



Your most lived-in rooms can blossom into pleas- 
ing, hospitable areas if you use a little ingenuity 
and well-placed color. This kitchen has been made 
more attractive by breaking it into separate areas 
of interest. You'll notice that the design areas have 
been aligned with the door and sink cabinet. Always 
be sure to align your design areas with some such 
break in the wall area. Shown here: Grey squares 
in a bright blue background. 

Other Color Combinations: Medium green with 
white squares; grey, red squares; white, pink 
squares; brown, beige squares; red, yellow 
squares; yellow, brown squares.

To make a room relaxing as well as interesting in 
terms of design and color, here's a restful, well- 
balanced pattern that suggests wide-plank wood 
flooring, yet varies enough to give the room a de- 
sign "lift." The result is a room that is restful but 
not dull. Shown here: Tan and brown. (Note the 
direction of the texture in each color. This is very 
important to the design.) 

Other Color Combinations: Light and dark grey; 
white and pale pink; white and pale blue; light 
and dark green; red and beige; aqua and dark green.

For halls

Beautiful but simple entrance halls are easy to 
create if you use this tasteful diagonal "block 
design." And the pattern can be easily adapted to 
any size area by simply expanding or reducing the 
size of the blocks. Just remember to use a border 
all around to absorb leftover space and permit you

DESIGN #11 



For dining room; halls 



For those who prefer subtle colors and cheerful, 
though rather formal dining rooms and foyers, this 
rectangular pattern with "cut" corners is distinc- 
tive and charming. The colors, as you can see, 
should be closely related — not too contrasting. 
And, of course, the pattern is definitely not recom- 
mended for irregular rooms. Shown here: Solid 
black pattern on a figured background of black 
with pink and white flecks. 

Other Color Combinations: Medium blue with white 
design; red with beige; medium grey with yellow; 
dark green with light blue.

For a large living room; bedroom 

The "open" or "wide placed plaid" has a wonderful 
way of fltting in with almost any decorative plan 
if upholstery and drapery fabrics are kept plain or 
of small design detail. And this floor pattern needn't 
always be bold, as the above color scheme shows. 
It can be subtle, and still be quite colorful. Natu- 
rally the room must be large to accommodate a 
pattern this size. Shown here: Yellow background 
with dark and light grey bands. 

Other Color Combinations: Light and dark green 
on a brown background; pink and blue on white; 
red and brown on beige or cream; blue and green 
on white; chartreuse and brown on white.

DESIGN #14 



For family room 



For family rooms, this pattern can act as an interest- 
ing and colorful space divider. If there are "traffic 
lanes" or grouped furniture areas, the design does 
a neat job of defining those areas in a distinctive 
way. Try using colors that will play up the furni- 
ture to best advantage. And be sure that the inset 
panel is large enough to accommodate the furniture 
without crowding it. Shown here: Turquoise and 
beige. 

Other Color Combinations: Warm combinations are 
beige and brown; coral and grey; brown and tan. 
Cool combinations are green and ivory; blue and 
beige. Also excellent in black and white.

Here*s a design that is reminiscent of some old 
Italian marble floors. The subtle colors add to the 
look of richness that is especially good in a living 
or dining room. The white areas can be lengthened, 
if you like, and used this way across the width of the 
room, they'll tend to make it seem wider. Shown 
here: White with light and dark green. 

Other Color Combinations: Always keeping the light 
color in the center of the frame, try two shades of 
blue with white; two shades of purple with white; 
beige, brown and white; black and white with 
orange center; black and white with bright pink 
center.

For child's room; bedroom 



For a child's room, dining room or bedroom, this 

bold, basket- weave pattern works equally well with 
either bright, strong colors or softer, more subdued 
shades. It is especially pleasing for rooms decorated 
in simple Early American or French Provincial 
style. The pattern works well in most rooms 9' x 12' 
or larger, but in smaller rooms the pattern repeat 
is really too massive to fit properly. Shown here: 
Blue, black and white. 

Other Color Combinations: Tan, light beige and 
brown; pink, red and white; white with light and 
dark green; yellow, brown and white.

4 DESIGN #16 



For family room 



50% Each color 



Colonial furniture is best "set off" by a fairly simple 
but stylized background that harmonizes with 
deep, quiet and conservative wood and brass tones. 
These large rectangles (18'' x 27") can be done in 
contrasting colors, or one color plus a neutral color. 
You can adapt the size of the rectangles to suit the 
size of the room. Just be sure that the texture in 
all tiles of the same color always goes in the same 
direction and that the texture of all tiles of the 
second color goes at right angles to the texture of 
the first color. Shown here: Cocoa with mocha. 

Other Color Combinations: Any color with white 
or off-white; combination of light and dark blue; 
light and dark grey; light and dark green. 



DESIGN #17For most any room with few windows ^ 



Rooms with few windows need this sort of bright- 
ening to relieve their rather gloomy aspect. For 
the ''bright stripe'* treatment, pick a bright color 
that you especially like, and mix it with two pale, 
or neutral colors. For narrow rooms, run the stripes 
across the narrow way and you'll create the illusion 
of much more width and space. Shown here: Gera- 
nium with grey and white. 

Other Color Combinations: Blue background with 
black and white stripes; black with pink and blue 
stripes; red with beige and white stripes; brown 
with yellow and beige stripes; white with orange 
and yellow stripes.

4 DESIGN #18 For kitchen; halls; family room 

For kitchens especially, a warm and sunny yellow 
is highly recommended. But this pattern needn't 
be confined exclusively to yellow — nor need it be 
confined to the kitchen — the staggered blocks are 
prescribed for any irregular room or area, in the 
colors that fit best. Shown here: Yellow and grey. 

Other Color Combinations: Black and white; blue 
and white; two shades of green; beige and brown; 
pink and red — a bit tricky to handle, but good with 
white walls and woodwork.

• • .for bright^ good-looking floors at minimum cost 

The new Excello enamel-surface line provides the homemaker with an 
outstanding opportunity to choose colorful, gleaming floor coverings at 
unbelievably low cost. And there is a wide range of popular-sized rugs and 
by-the-yard materials to choose from! 

Excello has a smooth, enamel surface that cleans easily. Colors are bright and 
clear. It resists dirt, grease, and dulling film. Most household stains vanish with 
the wipe of a damp mop or cloth. 

Excello rugs and by-the-yard install easily and quickly. Both rugs and 
by-the-yard material are simply unrolled and put down over the present floor; 
and both lie flat without fastening. This new floor covering product comes in a 
complete range of high style designs. There are sculptured, floral, tile, and 
carpet texture patterns.

HOW TO CARE FOR 



Q(MSeat 



FLOORS AND WALLS 



Properly maintained Gold Seal Floors and Walls will give 

their owners years of sparkling, trouble-free service. 

Mild cleaning agents, such as Nairn Linoleum Cleaner, 

are recommended. Nairn Self-Polishing Wax will protect, 

preserve and add a high luster to any floor. 



FLOORS 

A damp mop will remove light soihng from Gold 
Seal Floors. Rubber heel marks can be cleaned 
from all Gold Seal products, except asphalt tile, 
by rubbing with a cloth moistened in a dry clean- 
ing solvent. To wash floor coverings use warm 
water and Nairn Linoleum Cleaner. Use fine 
steel wool for stubborn smudges. Rinse thor- 
oughly with clean water and allow to dry. Do 
not use excessive water. After the floor is com- 
pletely dry, apply a light coat of Nairn Self- 
Polishing Wax with a wool applicator or soft 
cloth. AUow to dry for half an hour before using 
or applying a second coat of wax. Repeat this 
process as often as required — every week or two 
in kitchens and other service areas. Abrasive 
cleamng compounds should never be used, for 
they roughen and scratch surfaces. Strong soaps 
and detergents should be avoided, except where 
the floor is Gold Seal Nairon Custom. They can 
be used on this product to speed cleaning, with- 
out fear of harming the surface. 

Do not apply lacquer, plastic or other hard 
finishes to any Gold Seal Floor. These materials 
tend to yellow the colors and will wear ofl'in traffic 
spots. In the case of Gold Seal Nairon Plastics, 
hard finishes quickly peel off the non-porous sur- 
face. Use only Nairn or some other good self- 
pohshing wax on asphalt tile, as paste and solvent 
waxes have a harmful effect on their composition. 



WALLS 

Most soiling is easily removed from "Congowall,'* 
Gold Seal Standard Wall Covering, or "Bermuda 
Hues'* Nairon Standard Tile with a damp cloth. 
When a complete washing is indicated, use warm 
water and Nairn Linolevim Cleaner. Rinse the 
wall covering thoroughly with clean warm water, 
and dry with a terry cloth or chamois. No waxing 
is required. 



COUNTER TOPS 

Keep Gold Seal NaironTop clean with a damp 
cloth. Always use a pad under pots that are 
hotter than boihng water. NaironTop sink and 
counter tops may be waxed or not, as the 
owner prefers. However, an occasional waxing 
with a good paste wax will produce a lasting 
mirror-briUiance. 



Important 



Broken casters and small metal slides indent 
floor coverings and may mar them permanently. 
Equip all furniture with large surface casters, 
glides or furniture cups. Rest heavy appliances 
or cabinets on a separate, extra pad of floor 
covering cut to the size of the base.
